Victor Moses will not take part in Nigeria’s international friendlies against Cameroon and DR Congo in October.
Nigeria head coach Sunday Oliseh received the news philosophically and says he will now tackle both games with the players he has available.
“We have no choice now but to work with the other players who are available.
“The fact that the other batch of players from home were not issued their visas last week is also setting us back because we would really want to take advantage of the time to put in a lot of work,” Oliseh said.
Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo, currently on loan to Turkish side Kasimpasa SK, has since pulled out of both friendlies with injury.
The Super Eagles play the Leopards of Democratic Republic of Congo in Vise, Liege, on Thursday, October 8 and will then confront Cameroon’s Indomitable Lions in Dendermonde on Sunday, October 11.
